For children, liquid vitamins may have a less appealing taste, but they are easier for the body to absorb, than the chewable tastier versions of the supplement. It is not all that uncommon for a youngster to choke and have some problems with breathing and swallowing due to the problems in the absorption of the vitamin supplement. This can also be a common problem among adults as well. In most cases with adults that have lost the ability to properly control their jaw or they are not capable of consuming anything that is not in liquid form.
It is more effective to ingest a liquid form of vitamins because they can almost immediately be broken down and processed within the blood stream. This method gives it a an approximate absorption rate of 90-98%. More importantly the liquid form is at least three times more concentrated than the pill forms. This essentially leads to higher bio-activity and a better therapeutic benefits.
Liquid vitamins also contain antioxidants, without the antioxidants the vitamin would be useless. The most important antioxidants are vitamins A,C and E. Because these specific vitamins are not produced by our body it is vital that we ingest the proper amounts of each to maintain proper health. The antioxidants are our bodies main defense against some forms of cancer as well as the adverse affects of some of the harmful oxidation reactions. Without the proper antioxidants our bodies are not healthy and we can become weak.
One of the main reasons that people do not like to acknowledge the benefits of a liquid vitamin is due to a rumor that liquid vitamins cause destruction in the digestive acids by vitamins and minerals it can not recognize as being an important part of the digestion process. This is completely false. The digestive system would prefer to absorb the liquid form as opposed to the capsule or pill form of the vitamin. This is because it is much easier for the body to break down the liquid than the capsule.
Many individuals strongly believe that liquid vitamins are toxic to your body. Well, rest assured this is not true. The concern arises from the colloidal minerals that are found within them. To be honest, even apples have 3-5 mg of colloidal minerals in them. Does that mean apples are dangerous for us to eat? This substance can not possibly be avoided. The choice for the right vitamin for you is solely up to your personal preference. Only you can decide the type of supplement that is best for you to take.
